    Patients with ephedrone parkinsonism (EP) show a complex, rapidly progressive, irreversible, and levodopa non-responsive parkinsonian and dystonic syndrome due to manganese intoxication. Eye movements may help to differentiate parkinsonian syndromes providing insights into which brain networks...

    Background: The traditional view of Parkinson's disease (PD) as a motor disorder only treated by dopaminergic medications is now shifting to include non-pharmacologic interventions. We have noticed that patients with PD obtain an immediate, short-lasting benefit to mobility by the end of a dance...

  • Motor execution is necessary to memorize disparity. Kapoula, Z.; Bucci, M. P.; Bernotas, M.; Zamfirescu, F. // Experimental Brain Research;Apr2000, Vol. 131 Issue 4, p500 

    Binocular saccades in response to briefly flashed, memorized disparate targets (different for the two eyes) become disconjugate following repeated trials. After 15 min of such training, the disconjugacy persists, even when the target to memorize is no longer disparate. This study examines the...

    A number of studies suggest that some features of essential tremor (ET) and Parkinson disease (PD) overlap. Besides tremor, also some cognitive features have been implicated in ET and PD. There is recent evidence that a common genetic mutation occurs in ET and PD. Saccadic eye movements could...

    Background and Aim: Patients with Parkinson's disease manifest oculomotor abnormalities. This is the consequence of basal ganglia impairment. The most common abnormalities include increased saccade latency, hypometric saccades and decreased saccade velocity. The purpose of this study was...

  • Effect of stimulus probability on anti-saccade error rates. Koval, Michael J.; Ford, Kristen A.; Everling, Stefan // Experimental Brain Research;Nov2004, Vol. 159 Issue 2, p268 

    Subjects sometimes fail to suppress a reflexive saccade towards the flashed stimulus in an anti-saccade task. Here, we studied how error rates in the anti-saccade task varied as a function of saccadic probability. Ten subjects performed 200 anti-saccade trials for each of three saccade-direction...

    Patients with Alzheimer's disease have an impairment of inhibitory control for reasons that are currently unclear. Using an eye-tracking task (the gap-overlap paradigm), we examined whether the uncorrected errors relate to the task of attentional disengagement in preparation for action....

    BACKGROUND: Oculomotor deficits are potentially a preclinical predictor of Huntington's disease (HD). Saccadic abnormalities include delayed initiation, low velocity and disinhibition and can be partially explained by neurodegeneration of the caudate nucleus, a region vital to saccadic control....

    Niemann-Pick Type C disease (NPC) is a rare genetic disorder of lipid metabolism. A parameter related to horizontal saccadic peak velocity was one of the primary outcome measures in the clinical trial assessing miglustat as a treatment for NPC. Neuropathology is widespread in NPC, however, and...

  • Anti-saccades away from faces: evidence for an influence of high-level visual processes on saccade programming. Gilchrist, Iain D.; Proske, Henning // Experimental Brain Research;Sep2006, Vol. 173 Issue 4, p708 

    The anti-saccade task is an important tool for investigating both the generation of voluntary saccades and the suppression of involuntary, stimulus driven, saccades. In the anti-saccade task participants have to suppress an involuntary saccade to the stimulus in order to generate a voluntary...
